Frequently Asked Questions
What is Goat Yoga?
S-Farms’ goat are Nigerian Dwarf Goats which are a miniature goat breed. Although they are miniature, adults may range up to 55lbs. Goats of all ages and sizes participate in yoga but note our largest goat is about 40 lbs and does not jump on people but she does visit. Yes, goats do poo and pee but it is very rare for them to do their business on you. If they poo on your mat, they are little hard pellets and easy to remove by lifting the mat to dispose of them. We also like to make our guests aware that our cute little goats do have teeth and little hoofs and although, they do not typically bite or kick there may be a rare occasion it could happen. Its also possible, if you have bare body parts their little hoofs may scratch you. Our goats are trained or are in training to participate in yoga and they, almost always are safe to be around and love people but its good to remember they are livestock animals. They are taught to interact with people which may include jumping on you, snuggling, investigating you and your belongs and/or sitting or sleeping on you or your mat. Goats are easy going, sweet and smart and will easily move if gently pushed away. It is solely your responsibility to watch out for yourself and any minor children under your care. Please use caution and common sense. We do require all guests to sign a Release of Liability Waiver.
